Trump’s EPA Sets Stage For More Americans With Cancer

Trump has not just declared war on immigrants, Iran, etc. but most importantly he has declared his hatred of the American people


Trump has reached a new low with the rolling back of protections against harmful toxins in the American environment.  Blatant cronyism at the cost of American lives.

Example: In a report from IRIS (Integrated Risk Information System) there was evidence to change the classification of ethylene oxide (odorless gas used to sterilize medical equipment and to make other chemicals) from probably carcinogenic to plainly carcinogenic, based on several studies that showed higher breast cancer rates in exposed female workers, and indeed a safety threshold that was 30 times more lethal than previous estimations. This information gave the EPA Office of Air and Radiation the ability to find areas where those who breathed ethylene oxide were in the path of the risk of cancer.

Despite this warning, the ACC (American Chemistry Council) which represents chemical manufacturers in the U.S., “asked” IRIS to change its assessment of ethylene oxide. Dow Chemical, which is the largest producer of ethylene oxide in the U.S. and second-largest in the world to Saudi Basic Industries (Saudi Arabia), disputed the EPA’s assessment.

ExxonMobil Chemical (U.S.) is the third-largest producer with the Netherlands, China, Italy, Iran, and the United Kingdom all making money producing this chemical.

Trump’s EPA has announced that it would be calling for reductions in the IRIS pollution report. Trump seeks to weaken protections to Americans while filling the deep pockets of industries that rely on the use of ethylene oxide.  The most important protection would have been protection against cancers which often are deadly and astronomically expensive to try to eliminate in cancer victims.
